OUTSTANDING: 5 great footballers who never received red card


In the passionate, fast-paced world of modern football, bookings are common sights in great matches. As football officiating becomes stricter, especially in the Premier League, it is no mean feat to play several games without being booked. There are, however, some great footballers of international repute who never received red card throughout their career.

5. Raul Gonzalez

“Raúl González” .. In His 18 years of Football career , He DID NOT HAVE ANY RED CARD !

Eighteen years as a player; 388 goals in 932 club games; 44 more strikes for Spain; UEFA Champions League triumphs in 1998, 2000 and 2002 (including becoming the first player to score in two finals) and six Spanish titles among a vast trophy haul; no red cards.

4. Philipp Lahm

Well, the Bayern Munich legend has played his entire career as a defender; occasionally deployed in a deep-lying midfield role. Clearly, his job for the team is to get stuck in, but through 652 club appearances, plus 113 international caps before his 2014 retirement; he has admirably never seen red.

3. Karim Benzem

⚽️ 109 Goals
❌ 0 Red Card
🏆 34 Trophies

Ryan Giggs played an outrageous 963 games for Manchester United, including 672 in the Premier League and 157 in Europe. Yet the Red Devil never allowed the red mist to descend, and despite his 24-year career, was never ordered off the pitch.

The one tiny blemish on his otherwise spotless record is that he was sent off once during his 64-cap Wales career. He was shown a second yellow in the 86th minute of his country’s World Cup qualifier against Norway, but we won’t let that tarnish his unblemished club record.

1. Andres Iniesta
